DealerRater Enhances DealerRater Push to Google

DealerRater® Enhances DealerRater Push™ to Further Help Certified Dealers Boost Positive Review Counts on Google

Waltham, Mass. – December 1, 2011 – DealerRater®, the nation’s premier car dealer review web site, announced today an important update to its DealerRater Push™ product, a key feature of the DealerRater Certification Program. With this new enhancement, Certified Dealer members will be able to further build positive online reviews and associated star ratings from customers on Google.  For every consumer that now posts a positive review of a Certified Dealer on DealerRater, DealerRater Push will prompt the reviewer to copy and paste the review and star rating to Google Places.   DealerRater Push was formerly limited to reviewers maintaining Google/gMail accounts.

“Our Certified Dealer partners are successful in soliciting happy sales and service customers to write online reviews on DealerRater,” said Chip Grueter, president at DealerRater.  “With our DealerRater Push solution, Certified Dealers can expect to also increase positive review counts on Google as they work to build reviews from satisfied customers on DealerRater.”

Through DealerRater Push, DealerRater reviews populate to Google Places immediately, rather than having to wait the four to six weeks it has traditionally taken for Google to index the DealerRater review content into dealer Google Places pages.

DealerRater Push is included within the framework of DealerRater’s comprehensive Certified Dealer Program, a proven online reputation tool for car dealers.  Embraced by more than 4,200 car dealers across the U.S. and Canada, the Certified Dealer Program is designed to help car dealerships grow their online presence and achieve higher SEO rankings across the Web.  Certified Dealers are able to connect with DealerRater’s five million web site visitors while demonstrating an utmost commitment to quality customer service.
